Community

 

Located in the heart of downtown Binghamton, Christ Episcopal Church engages with its surrounding community in all its varied events.  

We join in programs to serve those in need of food, clothing and care (see Outreach section).

Christ Episcopal Church is a regular participant in First Fridays.  We feature local artists in our Great Hall, host concerts from Binghamton University musicians, local high schools, and others in the Sanctuary.  We offer building tours, including to our bell tour.  Light snacks are provided.

We join in the fun of downtown in other ways, too, by supporting the Beer and Beasts Run and our own Oktoberfest where we feature products from local brewers and German food.  At other times of the year, we host activities on our expansive lawn downtown.  We love a parade and join with our fellow downtowners on Columbus Day, St. Patrick's Day and other times.

The lawn is open to all for lunch, walking pets, or taking time out on a shady bench.  Keep an eye open for our vegetable garden in the summer.   The sanctuary is open for quiet, for prayer and meditation Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
